Winding Down with Some Cracklin' Chicken & Telly

It's a Friday night, and you just want to wind down after a long week.  Whether you're enduring the cruel winters in the midwest or irked by the strange 80-degree weather in California, some good ol' fried chicken is always a welcomed comfort food when it's time to relax.  Although I can't pass down the secrets to my mama's recipe, I'll share some of the ingredients so that you can experiment and discover your own recipe for this delicious cracklin' chicken.  And we all know that the night would not be complete without watching reruns of the Golden Globes, deciding on the Best and Worst Dressed.  But let's skip the Worst Dressed since no one likes to be humiliated.

My favorites somehow ended up being neutrals, wine/red, and black gowns.  All these stunning actresses glowed radiantly, as their dresses accentuated and underlined their best features.  While Kerry Washington and Michelle Dockery turned heads, again, on the red carpet, T-Swift donned the gown of one of my favorite designers.  The ladies definitely understand their body type, which leads me to clue you in on useful tips when choosing dresses.

{TIP #1}: If you have a beautiful collarbone, flaunt it with a round neckline. {TIP #2}: If you have a curvy body or wide hips (Pear Shaped or Hourglass), go with an A-line dress that starts above the waist. {TIP #3}: If you're Apple Shaped, avoid round necks and opt for an Empire or Sheath/Column gown. {TIP #4}: If you have slim hips and narrow shoulders, prioritize Mermaid gowns over the rest.

Happy Friday, Happy Grubbing!  Cheers to a long weekend.
